    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    instead of a review, I'll post what it says on the box. Honestly, I'd get this again just to read the "fratures" again. Everything is verbatim-- except my comments. Product function: +USB interface(fro[sic] USB 1.0 or 2.0) +Fully compatible wit...
    Cons:
    Product frature[sic]: +Support the plug and play. +Imitate the mode to convert with normal regulations mode arbitrarily. (tha...

    Can't burn, neat nonetheless

    posted by madscienti11 on 08/02/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Purple laser! Neat color! Great for drawing on glow in the dark stuff. Especially at night, this has a really neat effect.
    Cons:
    It can't burn anything. The dot isn't round. I have no way of measuring, but I don't think this is 100mW. I wish DX sold disa...

    Shiny!

    posted by madscienti11 on 08/02/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Excellent mirroring! Has RB letters all over... Not sure why ;-P. It has letters on the nose holders, the model is stamped upside down on the bridge, and it says the country of origin on the stems. It is very strange that these were made in Italy even thou...
    Cons:
    Mirrored finish isn't very durable. If polished, it looks really nice, but be careful there isn't anything on your cloth or the...

    Perfect

    posted by madscienti11 on 08/02/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Charges batteries! I haven't tried anything but 3.6V 18650s, but it works great on them. Fortunately, it has a cutoff circuit, so unprotected cells are fine. Just insert the cell with the power unplugged. Plug the power in, the light will turn red, and then...
    Cons:
    The light on the power adapter isn't strictly necessary.... Rubber feet would be nice, but it really doesn't matter.

    As Advertised

    posted by madscienti11 on 08/02/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Its a lighter in a belt buckle. Ever seen a lighter in a belt buckle? Didn't think so. Keeps zippo upright, some of these will leak if kept upside-down. Quicker than out of a pocket! I don't smoke, but it is pretty neat.
    Cons:
    I find this type of buckle hard to tighten. Has the Porsche logo. If you own a Porsche, this would work really well for you, b...

    Flints & Wick

    posted by madscienti11 on 05/24/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Lots of flints and one long wick. With all these extra flints... You can have fun. Hold one in a pair of plyers. Take a butane torch and heat the flint up until it glows. Now, throw it at something. It'll go nuts!
    Cons:
    The wick is one long wick, but you can cut it with some sharp scissors or wire cutters. Dealextreme sells some stuff like this....

    You need to know how to use it

    posted by madscienti11 on 05/24/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    You need to know how to use it. It is helpful to know how a lock works, and it is even more helpful to know how to use regular lockpicks. However, you can just go at it... Just stick the gun in aligned with the pins (some are on the bottom, check before you...
    Cons:
    Hard if you don't know how to use it. There are 4 included picks, but eventually you'll destroy all of these and I can't find w...

    X-actly what I needed

    posted by madscienti11 on 05/24/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Its a craft knife. Six blades, nice and cheap. If you've ever used a craft knife before, you probably don't need five hundred characters of explanation. Five hundred characters, in fact, seems a tad excessive.
    Cons:
    The blades aren't as sharp as I like... But it is certainly worthwhile. The little thing inside the screw (I guess you could ca...

    Glows.

    posted by madscienti11 on 05/24/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    It glows. It comes in an easy to apply form. The instructions provide comedic relief during use.
    Cons:
    Not super bright. The glass jar it comes in was made pretty shoddily. The bottom of the liquid is not parallel with the bottom ...

    It is a light.

    posted by madscienti11 on 05/24/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    It is a light. What did you expect? Fits perfectly in the stock opening for the rear hatch light on my car. Nice and bright, though some could accuse it of being blue.
    Cons:
    The price isn't too cheap... If you are comfortable doing some soldering or creative wire bending, there are better options out...
